This game makes WoW looks good...

    'Good'  --   I don't think that word means what you think it means.......

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    People are too frequently getting bad graphics and art style confused. I'm not saying they're high end, but I doubt they're worse than WoW. People have been saying the same thing about Neverwinter, and in reality their problem is with the classic artstyle of the Neverwinter series, rather than an actual issue with the graphics engine.


    I'm still waiting for gamers, MMO gamers especially, to figure out that more graphics = less game.

    Compare side by side and look closer at the characters and armour.

    I'm sick of your guilty until proven innocent style! It's the idea that matters!

    I'm super-duper-ooper-whooper excited for this game, I gave it 11/10!

    Surely there must be some way for us to stop these negative people who are just kickdownering our game!?

    Yea, same here. It might not be a WoW-clone Gameplay-wise... but sure is graphics-wise.

    Don't forget its also a clone online wise. Oh and they both have a website. wtf is going on?

    If you continue to make sweeping statements like you know what everyone everywhere thinks about a certain topic then I am going to shout at you.
    It easy to type 'I think this is the worst game ever'
    Rather than the 'This is the worst game ever'

    People are actually shocked other people are looking forward to something they're not? As in...people have different tastes other than my own?

    I'm shocked. Just shocked. Shocked.

    I like this game because it looks like a fun, well-made game.

    Why you such a hater?

    OP: Purposely bashing another game is common for fanboys. They have to disparage another title that 'threatens' theirs. The OP is big into CU so he pulls a Garriot and basically has to say other games suck to somehow bolster the position of the game he's following. Pretty old trick if you ask me. It doesn't even work.

    The punch line of all this: Not once have the WildStar devs said anything bad about another MMO or studio. In fact, they have done nothing but support other studios. They even refunded $20 bucks to someone mistakenly spent on the wrong game thinking it was WildStar. Gaffney said that they really can't bash other games, since their folks helped make most of the good ones.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    I used to think the same thing, until I actually started looking into the game.  It has some simply amazing ideas to anyone who is a fan of Sanbox games; it's kind've an introduction to Sandbox MMOs for those who haven't played one, as it has a lot of themepark elements as well.

    Give it some ample research and you'll see why it's so popular.   :D

    One or 2 solid answers, out of the lot, thanks guys. Anyways, yea, I get the sandbox thing, I to love a good sandbox... But man, I do seriously think WoW has better graphix, but that's just me. I highly doubt it has better gameplay (what does, really?). Still, I'm surprised game developers can produce something with this level of graphics and still have a bunch of fans... I guess there are people really like the super-stylized graphics. What can you say...

    Man, lotta haters in here. A man can't ask a question? Geez. Thanks to the few people who gave reasonable answers. lol


    There was a video I watched where they addressed their choice of graphics style in terms of aethestics and art.  They made note that highly realistics games tend to be shunned six months down the road when the next "call of duty" is released, rendering the previous one obsolete in the eyes of "realistic" looking graphics fans.  The opposite is true in a game that aims for a specific art style; these games age well and could still be considered "Pretty" ten years later even as technology advances.  

    Such an explanation probably won't quell personal taste when it comes to how one likes their games to look, but I believe it is a feasible "excuse" as to why so many MMOs go for style over pure graphics (in addition to the obvious lower system requirements equaling more potential customers).

    What has really caught me is their sense of humor and the ideas they have pushing things forward.  Warplots, sandbox professions and elements, housing, raids, etc.  The way they talk about end game, subscription models, and how players can help each other with their professions (Such as settlers actively changing the world and setting down objects and houses others can interact with, explorers having exclusive access to underground networks with rare minerals and quicker transport around the words and who are able to invite others into their networks, scientists studying enemy types and finding various things out, etc.).  Then all those elements that could be introduced in PvP and Guild versus Guild Warfare like constructing bases and defenses and the like.

    I'm probably most interested in the housing as I just loved it back in Ultima Online.  They have some great ideas for that as well.  But nearly every aspect seems to have some real thought behind it, and each of the characters shown seem to have real some good... character?  To them.

    Five minute Video:

    These Episodes shows you some of their humor and character's... character.

    Ninety minute video with a lot of gameplay and talking about the systems above.

    People with agendas on the internet are adorable.  Hatred spews ignorance.  Bias reveals stances.  Temperance begets balance.  Be the critic of your favored piece for its improvement and adhere to the pragmatic logic that there is no expertise in opinions.  Comment not on what games you dislike, for you aren't the audience nor expert on such and are only the opposition of reason with your rhetoric.

    The OP stirring the pot kind of made this not much of a discussion. An actual comparison thread  for someone genuinely looking for graphics differences/gameplay/etc would be fine but the way this was framed was just a bash.
